The latest research suggests that the abducens nerve may be divided into sub-branches that reach functionally distinct zones of the lateral rectus muscle. The goal of the study was to examine this muscle's innervation, including the detailed distribution of the intramuscular sub-branches of the abducens nerve.

: The intramuscular nerve distribution in the extraocular muscles is important for understanding their function. This study aimed to determine the intramuscular nerve distribution of the oculomotor ne...
The traditional approach for periosteal fixation of the lateral rectus muscle involves securing the muscle using nonabsorbable sutures by exposing the orbital periosteum 5 mm to the inside of the orbi...
Lateral rectus disinsertion and reattachment to the lateral orbital wall has been previously described as a successful technique for satisfactory ocular alignment in patients with oculomotor cranial n...
: Recession and resection of rectus muscles for correction of strabismus in Thyroid Eye Disease (TED) is relatively unpopular as it is assumed to enhance the restriction of ocular ductions. Therefore,...
To determine whether suturing to the residual muscle stump induces postoperative muscle migration after superior rectus muscle (SRM) resection in rabbit eyes.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of bilateral lateral rectus muscle recession versus unilateral lateral rectus recession with medial rectus resection procedures f...
Objective measures of skeletal muscle features have previously been used to assess skeletal muscle quality. In certain clinical populations, such as intensive care (ICU) patients, specific...
- Background and study aims : The investigators conducted this study to compare the movement of extraocular muscle after two types of recession surgery with non-invasive tool ca...
During Cesarean section in Group 1 rectus muscle will be closed with interrupted sutures. In group 2 rectus muscle will not be closed. Postoperative pain scores and bowel functions will be...
We include in our study 200 pregnant women, primigravidas, at term who underwent elective lower segment Cesarean section for the first time among the age group of 20 ̶ 35 years. The pati...
A form of ocular misalignment where the visual axes diverge inappropriately. For example, medial rectus muscle weakness may produce this condition as the affected eye will deviate laterally upon attempted forward gaze. An exotropia occurs due to the relatively unopposed force exerted on the eye by the lateral rectus muscle, which pulls the eye in an outward direction.
The muscles that move the eye. Included in this group are the medial rectus, lateral rectus, superior rectus, inferior rectus, inferior oblique, superior oblique, musculus orbitalis, and levator palpebrae superioris.
Diseases of the oculomotor nerve or nucleus that result in weakness or paralysis of the superior rectus, inferior rectus, medial rectus, inferior oblique, or levator palpebrae muscles, or impaired parasympathetic innervation to the pupil. With a complete oculomotor palsy, the eyelid will be paralyzed, the eye will be in an abducted and inferior position, and the pupil will be markedly dilated. Commonly associated conditions include neoplasms, CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA, ischemia (especially in association with DIABETES MELLITUS), and aneurysmal compression.

A form of ocular misalignment characterized by an excessive convergence of the visual axes, resulting in a "cross-eye" appearance. An example of this condition occurs when paralysis of the lateral rectus muscle causes an abnormal inward deviation of one eye on attempted gaze.
Thick triangular muscle in the SHOULDER whose function is to abduct, flex, and extend the arm. It is a common site of INTRAMUSCULAR INJECTIONS.

Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
